Chen, Sufen; Huang, Chih-Chi; Chou, Te-Lien – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study explored the influence of experimental goal setting and planning on the attitudes toward science, self-efficacy, inquiry performance, and achievement of students with low academic performance. A total of 71 students aged 16-18 were randomly divided into a treatment group (with goal setting and planning) and a control group (without goal…

Liu, Chia-Ju; Jack, Brady Michael; Chiu, Houn-Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2008
This paper presents the results of a case study involving 282 Taiwanese elementary science teachers at the elementary level. These teachers provided responses to the science efficacy instrument (STEBI-A) and also provided personal data regarding how their years of general (YTE) and science (YTS) teaching experience may have influenced student…

Louis, Rachel A.; Mistele, Jean M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Typically, mathematics and science are seen as linked together, where both subjects involve numbers, critical thinking, and problem solving. Our study aims to develop a better understanding of the connections between student's achievement scores in mathematics and science, student gender, and self-efficacy. We used the Trends in International…

Lin, Tzung-Jin; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
In the past, students' science learning self-efficacy (SLSE) was usually measured by questionnaires that consisted of only a single scale, which might be insufficient to fully understand their SLSE. In this study, a multi-dimensional instrument, the SLSE instrument, was developed and validated to assess students' SLSE based on the previous…

Bursal, Murat – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2010
This study investigated Turkish preservice, elementary teachers' personal mathematics teaching efficacy (PMTE), and science teaching efficacy (PSTE) beliefs at the end of their teacher education program. A majority of the participants believed they were well prepared to teach both elementary mathematics and science, but their PSTE scores were…

Velayutham, Sunitadevi; Aldridge, Jill M.; Fraser, Barry – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of students' motivational beliefs (learning goal orientation, task value and self-efficacy) in science learning on students' self-regulation in the science classroom. The study also examines the moderating effect of gender on the proposed relationships. Data were collected from 719 boys…

Pamuk, Savas; Sungur, Semra; Oztekin, Ceren – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This study adopted a cross-sectional and correlational research design in an attempt to add our understanding of student- and teacher-level factors that help explain variability in students' science achievement to the existing literature. More specifically, the present article examined students' science achievement in relation to their…

Dionne, Liliane; Reis, Giuliano; Trudel, Louis; Guillet, Gabriel; Kleine, Leonard; Hancianu, Corina – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Science fairs have been for many years a popular school activity in North America. They are a venue for the popularization of science and consequently an important encouragement for the pursuit of careers in science or engineering. However, little is known about students' perceived motives for participating in local or national science fairs and…
